The statement signed by Abul Khair said, “The declaration circulated in my name in various media regarding the result of Supreme Court Bar Election, 2024-25 for the post of ‘Editor’ is completely without legal basis.” Unfortunately, before the counting of votes, I was pressured by the outside Mastan class to give a write-in, creating an undesirable situation.’

The statement said that the results will be announced after the counting of votes, “Though this is a meaningless announcement, all concerned are requested to avoid it in order to end the controversy.” The results will be announced after counting the votes.’

Lawyers who were victims and eyewitnesses of that day’s incident said that around 5 o’clock in the morning, outsiders suddenly entered and attacked. Several people were injured. Counting of votes is stopped. At that time, when some outsiders tried to take the ballot box, it was taken into police custody. As many candidates left the auditorium after the fight, Election Commissioner Abul Khair announced only independent candidate Nahid Sultana Juthi as the winner of the post of editor at around 6:30 am on Friday morning.

5 thousand 319 lawyers out of 7 thousand 883 lawyers exercised their right to vote in 2024-25 election of Supreme Court Lawyers Association.
